A 22-year-old man was killed Sunday near El Segundo after he lost control of his motorcycle, authorities said.

Erwin Infante of Los Angeles was traveling east on Imperial Highway about 6:10 a.m. and had just gotten onto the onramp to the 105 Freeway when he crashed his 2008 Honda motorcycle, California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos said.

Infante was pronounced dead at the scene.

The incident is being investigated as a single-vehicle accident, Villalobos said. The onramp was shut down for about three hours.
